Heart-shaped rosette. Turner label is facsimile by Dolmetsch; their own label also: “Repaired by / Arnold Dolmetsch / Haslemere / 1950” [printed except Repaired by, 1950]. Neck & head probably by Dolmetsch; fingerboard and tailpiece by M. Heale, who restored it for Caldwells. (TGM’s photos taken after later restoration by John Pringle for John Rozendaal.)
